Chipboard Birthday

Good Afternoon! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I have another card to show you today that I made a while back. All of the supplies I used for today's card (except for the "Happy Birthday" sentiment and pearls) are from the October Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions. I have never used chipboard on a card nor have I ever used Maya Mist before, so this specific Key Ingredients intimidated me a little at first...LOL.

The first thing I did was spritz the birdcage and bird wing with Avocado Metallic Maya Mist, then set them aside to dry. I was so surprised at how easy the mist was to use and the metallic shimmer it has to it is awesome. I traced the bird onto the patterned paper, cut it out, and adhered it to the chipboard. After the glue was dry, I sanded the edges and sponged it with a little Certainly Celery ink. The sentiment is from the Fresh Flowers set and I added a chocolate pearl for the bird's eye and a few below the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!



Very pretty...love the glitter! :0)


Hey Miss Lu-La! So nice to see you around. Looks like your cardmaking skills are still fully intact! This little birdcage is fantastic! Looks like you worked hard on this card...and it turned out really really nice. The patterned paper bird is so cool!
